Many home sellers are making improvements to their home to help it sell faster and for more money. This is a great option to help your home stand out from the competition, but make sure you spend your time and money on improvements that will give you a strong return on investment. Here are some tips to follow when deciding on which project will be worth your while:
- Certain home improvement projects are not always the most practical for your location. A heated sidewalk might be a smart investment for a home located in Northern Minnesota, but it would be a poor investment for warmer climates locations like Georgia.
- When looking at a certain improvement project, ask yourself if you would pay more for a home with that feature. If so, how much more. Keep in mind that price when you decide on how much money to invest.
- Keep it simple when looking at colors and designs to include in a project. Even though you might love how brightly colored tile look in your bathroom, stick neutrals to have the best resale value.
Some remodeling projects that have been known to give a strong return are minor kitchen and bath remodels, wood decks, replacing windows with vinyl windows and wood siding with vinyl or cement-fiber siding, and replacing the front door with a steel door.
